Alumni & Faculty News – MTL Collective


ICP is hosting a lecture tonight with MTL Collective, a group of GS alums who will be sharing their experience in creating collaborative and socially engaged art.

Here’s more about MTL:

MTL is a collaboration that joins research, aesthetics, and organizing in its practice. MTL’s underlying interest is the experience of being human and the broader cultural and social arrangements that make up our lives. As a movement, MTL attempts to disseminate montages of places and histories, of oppression and liberation. Why and who speaks on behalf of someone matters to MTL. This interest in voice is triggered by the demise of the nation-state and the observation that governments no longer represent the will of the people. On the ground, MTL circumvents, filters, and reaches unheard voices. MTL talks to people about life, liberation, and their realities, documenting the roads and geographies that lead to conversation.  Sometimes MTL is a passenger and other times a driver. Acknowledging where we are at, MTL asks how do we live? Who’s telling the story?

The presentations will start at 7pm and will be followed by an open Q&A, drink and networking.
